Bellinger (shoulder) and the Dodgers avoided arbitration Friday by agreeing to a one-year, $16.1 million contract, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Bellinger had his worst season at the plate last year, though his .239/.333/.455 line would have been quite good for many players, especially ones who spent the majority of their time in center field. He's spending the offseason recovering from surgery to repair a dislocated right shoulder, an injury he suffered as the result of an overly exuberant celebration during the NLCS.
